Potential? Woulda coulda shoulda MAYBE? Who knows. I wonder what its like not knowing if the broken arm or shattered orbital bone etc you may face will even cover your expenses. Your saying the fighters that risk their health but are not exciting deserve less than table scraps?
Isnt that what their new health insurance through the UFC covers? Or is that just for injuries that happen during training camp and miss the fight? (Honest question)
Less than table scraps? $10K in one night is less than table scraps?
If you're a boring fighter then you better be winning... because if you're not then you'll be finding yourself without a job relatively quickly. People want to see exciting fights/fighters and the UFC pay scale reflects that. Some no namer joe schmoe shouldnt just come in and get $20 grand just to show. Hell I'll step in the cage and take an ass whooping for that kind of coin.
